Suciu, a tennis player from Cluj, Romania, stood in wonder at being part of a sporting event with so many other Jews. Some 7,000 athletes from 52 countries are competing in the 17th Maccabiah Games, which opened Monday and run through July 21. "It's not about competing with them so much as just being pa...

For the most part they were middle-aged, tenured and tenure- track professors, engaged in an intensive three-week program to learn how to teach courses on Israel. The Summer Institute for Israel Studies, in its second year at Brandeis University, brought together 21 scholars from a diverse group of schools. It included Catholic universities such as Seton Hall and DePaul; large public universities such as UCLA, the Univer- sity of Massachusetts at Amherst and Michigan State; prestigious smaller schools such as Mddlebury and Brown; and very small colleges, such as Sweet Briar in Virginia. The goal was to learn how to teach about Israel — not...

"Certainly when there have been attacks in the past, we've seen a spike in anti-Semitism and vandalism," said Mike Whine of the Community Security Trust, the body that moni- tors threats to British Jewry. "We've already seen some extremist Web sites blaming Jews for the bombing, and we would be foolish to ignore it." There are similar concerns over dangers to the United Kingdom's Muslim community, with arson attacks at several mosques around the country over the weekend and Muslim organizations reporting quantities of hate mail. Imam Abduljalii Sajid, a prominent U.K. interfaith activist, said he had seen Muslims bei...

"The word has gone out that while there is strong sympathy and support for what Israel is doing, a big new aid request would be a mistake at a time when Congress can't even find the money for veterans programs and homeland security" said a top Congressional source. This week Israeli govern- ment representatives were in town for talks with National Security Council officials on the question of new assis- tance. A primary subject, according to American and Israeli sources, is how that economic boost— which Israel wants to help pay for the relocation of some military facilities from Gaza and for de...

In all our synagogues, British Jews are joining our prayers with those of others, grieving for the dead, praying for the injured, and sharing our tears with those of the bereaved. Terror has become the scourge of our age, and it will take all our inner strength to cope with it. I have met far too many victims of terror: survivors of the Istanbul syn- agogue bombing in 2003; of the 1994 terrorist attack on the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires; in Israel, where almost everyone knows someone who has been affected; as well as survivors of the massacres in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Kosovo. Like others, I have wept for the broken familie...

His father was a member of the Progressive Party and volunteered in The Abraham Lincoln Brigade, defending Spain against the fascists. He was also involved with The American League for a Free Pales- tine, and Brooks remembers him hiding guns in the house. "I wanted to be part of the action," he recalls. "I didn't want to be a dentist or accountant — I was never in the mold." He immigrated to Israel at 17 to volunteer on a kibbutz, and spent 3 1/2 of his sixyears there as an officer in the Israeli Army where his duties were partly military and partly spent setting up agricultural settle- ments for immigrants along the border. Upon returning to the United States in the early '60s, Brooks became involved with student Zionist organizations ...

That evening, the first campus partner to be recognized for exemplary Israel- oriented programming was Texas Hillel at the University of Texas. A delegation of 35 Texas student leaders rose to their feet and applauded enthusiastically, as Hillel Executive Director Rabbi David Kessel accepted AIPAC's 2005 "Ally of the Year Award" on behalf of the pro-Israel community at UT. "We had some great program- ming this year to help educate the campus about Israel — to dispel myths and change perceptions," said UT junior Michal Katz.

The old connections to people and places, so often taken for granted, are done away with. New ones, the ones that ulti- mately form the shape of an adult life, must arise to take their place. In the uncertainty and chaos of this aftermath of graduation, a connection to Judaism, and to other Jews, can be a strong foun- dation. That, at least, is the premise upon which College Ties, a Dallas-area program for Jewish teens of college age, is built. College Ties, now in its second year of operation, is a burgeoning social initiative. Created and mas- terminded by Susie Avnery, its scope and reach is extremely broad, involving an expansive net- work of liaisons to all the Dallas congregations, as well as Jewish youth groups, that any organiza- ...

They hide problem walls, absorb noise, and add depth and dimension like no other wall surface. And today's textured papers — like sea grass, bamboo, grasscloth, silk, burlap and jute — are no longer priced just for the jet set. In fact, nat- ural wallpaper's newfound affordability and technological advances make it a great value, since it stays beautiful for decades. "We've used natural textures in several of the homes we've built and remod- eled," says Liz Brunwin, design producer for ABC-TV's, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." "It is environmentally friendly and brings a bit of nature indoors, plus it adds serenity— yet is durable enough — f...

Almost half of that goes toward heating and cooling the home, according to the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star program. Luckily, today's programmable thermostats are simple to install — the project takes only a screwdriver and a few minutes of time. Simply note the wire attachment points when removing the old thermostat and rewire the new unit to the same points. It's time well spent. After all, programmable thermostats can save loads of money on utility bills and keep the house at the perfect con- stant temperature. In fact, the energy savings will offset the cost of a basic unit in less than a year, according to Powerful Savings, a joint effort between the U.S. Department of Energy and the Alliance to Sav...

"Our 'students' don't teach the Arab- Israeli conflict but, rather, Israel as a total society," he said. "Israel is an incredibly complicated place. Israeli life is more than a sound bite on CNN. The reduc- tionism that comes from the American media can lead to extremism." At a luncheon halfway through the program, seminar participants shared their experiences of what's happening on their own campuses in relation to the conflict around Israel, Israel studies and Israeli- Palestinian debate. The biggest problem many said they face isn't with pro-Palestinian students and faculty but with Amer- ican lewish community members outside campus, who often are sur- prised and enraged to hear critical comments about Israel at academic events — even from Israelis. Kaylin Goldstein, a professor at the University of Miami, told h...

Gross In bare feet, shorts, tee shirt and baseball cap, she could almost pass for a teenager. But the cap is the tipoff. Underneath, covered by a telltale bandana, is the bald head of a woman undergoing chemotherapy. Nancy Reuben Greenfield is no teen. She's a 44-year-old mother of two who has just given birth to her first book, 'When Mommy Had a Mastectomy.' Based on her own experience, of course. She had the mastectomy—two, actually — after her first diagnosis, back in late 2000. Now the book is hitting its reader- ship at the same time as its author is fighting a recurrence. The irony isn't lost on Greenfield. But neither has she lost her strong faith in God, and the belief that "b'shert" gave her this book idea during he...

I think of one of the most promising young men our com- munity has produced, Yoni Jesner, who was killed at age 19 in a sui- cide bombing in Tel Aviv. His family, out of deep religious con- viction, donated his organs to save lives — among them a seven-year- old Palestinian girl who had waited two years for a kidney transplant. Michael Walzer, a leading American political theorist, has written, "Terrorists are like killers on a rampage, except that their rampage is not just expressive of rage or madness; the rage is pur- poseful and programmatic." Its victims, deliberately, are the innocent and the uninvolved: workers in an office, passengers on a train, passersby on a pavement. Its aim is fear. It advances no interest. It has no conceivable claim...

Why is this so? True, he went along with Balak the King of Moab to curse the Israelites, but at the end of the day he blessed us, with the majestic blessing that opens our Daily Prayer Books: How goodly are your tents O lacob, your dwelling places, O Israel." (Numbers 24:5) And he even prophesied our mes- sianic victory at the end of the days:" I see it but not now, I look at it, but it is not near. A star has stepped forth from lacob and a scepter-bearer has risen from Israel... He (Israel) will pierce and vanquish the nobles of Moab.. .Edom will become (Israel's) inheritance...

As my daughter's fifth birthday approached, I began to feel agitated and very angry. Then one day memories, of my uncle coming into my bedroom at night flooded my mind. I began thinking about how my uncle came to live with us when I was five years old. As I thought more about my uncle, I began having nightmares about him. Then, a few days ago I remember my uncle coming into my room late at night. At first he just got in bed with me, but soon he began touching me. Eventu- ally he had sex with me. I don't ever remember telling anyone about this. Why am I thinking about this now? Why am I so angry? I feel like I am going crazy. I don't know what to do.
